Left handed Q

Scroll down to the middle of this advertisement and look at what they are advertising. Look familiar?

They should have given the camera a goatee.

I'd guess the seller assumes Hicor are less likely than Nonac or Nokin or Ynos to sue for unauthorized use of their name and image.

Years ago I was a moderator for several Compuserve forums. Forum members would occasionally upload desktop backgrounds
and other images, very often scanned from some licensed product. The most vigilant company of all in terms of not allowing any
unauthorized use? Disney, followed not too distantly by NFL/NBA/MLB. It wasn't unusual to get a take down order from Disney
before we had even noticed the upload. The most liberal? Surely Anheiser Busch, who seemed happy to have their name
attached to any product or image.

Companies who feel they're dominant often don't understand the value of getting even more exposure.

There is a "back story" that a movie producer wanted to use M&M candies as an integral part of their plot.
Mars wasn't interested, so the producer went on to their second choice.
And little-known Skittles became much better known as a result of the movie "E.T."

A number of years ago, I read an article on copyright issues for printers. The main aspect printers had to understand was that if a customer brings in work with a company logo, the printer had to make certain no copyrights were being infringed upon as THEY would be the ones who would be sued! The final statement always stayed with me, "Remember, if someone brings you a picture of Mickey M-use to print, ALL of Mickey's friends are lawyers!

Best regards,

That's all correct except that it was Reese's Pieces which were featured in the movie rather than Skittles. Skittles and Reese's Pieces were introduced to the American market around the same time, both in 1979 (though Skittles were sold in the U.K. before that). Reese's Pieces exploded in popularity thanks to the movie. That was in 1982. Skittles biggest boost in popularity didn't come until the successful "Taste the Rainbow" ad campaign in 1994 (obviously they weren't an abject failure before that, or they would have been dropped).

Incidentally, Reese's Pieces are made by Hershey Corporation while M&Ms are made by Mars. Skittles are made by Wrigley in the US, which was its own company up until 2008 when it was acquired by Mars.
